...high rip current risk in effect through late thursday night...

the national weather service in jacksonville has issued a high
rip current risk...which is in effect through late thursday
night. 

* timing...a high risk of rip currents is expected through
  thursday...as swells from edouard enter the coastal waters.

* impacts...rip currents are strong and dangerous...flowing
  quickly away from shore.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

there is a high risk of rip currents. 

rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. pay attention to flags and posted signs. 

if you become caught in a rip current...do not panic. remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. once you are away from the
force of the rip current...begin to swim back to the beach. do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.

...beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...

* hazards...strong rip currents and dangerous shore break.

* location...high threat of rip currents north of cape lookout. 
  moderate threat of rip currents south of cape lookout. 
  dangerous shore break across all area beaches.

* timing and tides...the most likely time for dangerous rip
  currents is a few hours either side of low tide...which will
  occur around 9 am today.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. pay attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach
access points and lifeguard stations.

if you become caught in a rip current...do not panic. remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. once you are away from the
force of the rip current...begin to swim back to the beach. do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current...since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.

shore break occurs when waves break directly on the beach. the
most common injuries with strong shore break are neck and back
injuries...which most often occur when the powerful surf throws a
swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom. it is extremely
important to protect your head and neck whenever you are in
breaking waves by keeping your hands in front of you at all
times.
